SOS June Tic Tac Toe - "Love My Sons!"

It's time for June's Tic Tac Toe Challenge over at the Scrap Our Stash Blog friends!  Can you believe we are halfway through 2017!!  I hope you can take some time for yourself this month and play along with us on this SUPER FUN Challenge from Scrap Our Stash!

Here is the board - just pick three items in a row to use on your layout from your Stash - and get scrappy with it!!

Here is my inspiration layout for you -  Title: "Love My Sons!"

This is a photo of my sons and me, at a family party. I used:
the top row - the COLOR RED, BUTTONS, and RIBBON for the challenge.

Here are some close ups for you:

I fussy cut some of the flowers and pop-dotted them around the photo.  PS - I LOVE these 2 guys too!!

I used Evergreen Bough and Picket Fence Ranger Distress Stain on the chipboard element. 

 Above and below are close ups of the texture that I added to the layout.  I used light modeling paste and a stencil to create the design.  I then dabbed a baby wipe in the Evergreen Bough Distress Stain and tapped it on top of the wet modeling paste to create 2 the tone look you see.  I LOVE how it came out - and will have to try it again on other layouts! 

Thanks so much for stopping by.   I hope I have inspired you to PLAY ALONG with us at the Scrap Our Stash Blog this month!!  I can't wait to see what row you choose!!
